The ATC-4-1 report, The Home Builders Guide for Earthquake Design, was published under a contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). (Published 1980, 63 pages)
ABSTRACT: This report is an abridged version of the ATC-4 report. The concise, easily understood text of the Guide is supplemented with illustrations and 46 construction details. The details are provided to ensure that houses contain structural features that are properly positioned, dimensioned and constructed to resist earthquake forces. A brief description is included on how earthquake forces impact on houses and some precautionary constraints are given with respect to site selection and architectural designs.
